Webinar: Using GIS and Mapping Tools to Guide Local Action

Posted by on December 8, 2008

On Thurs., December 18, at 2:30 p.m. Eastern Time, the YEF Institute will sponsor a free, hour-long audioconference highlighting city efforts to use geographic information system (GIS) technology and other tools to map available youth programs and resources, and to analyze gaps in city services.

“Using GIS and Mapping Tools to Guide Local Action” will feature speakers from cities that have recently used GIS technology and other tools to assess the accessibility of local youth programs. These tools have also helped municipal officials map key indicators – like school attendance, juvenile crime and afterschool program participation – and compare that data with the location of a broad range of services for children and youth. The data gathered from these local mapping efforts can be critical to ensuring that young people have access to the programs and services they need most.
